The trias – The first tic-tac-toe game in history

This is a strategy game that was spread throughout the ancient world and continues to have fans to date (similar to the modern tic-tac-toe). It was played by two players on a board diagram in the shape of a circle with eight equidistant rays or in the shape of a square with its segment axes and sometimes its diagonals. Thus, nine pawn (pessoi) positions were created at the section points of the lines. Each player had three pawns (of different
color or kind, such as black and white pebbles, broad beans and beans, walnuts and acorns, etc.)
and they tried, playing alternately, to form a straight row or block the opponent from doing so. They continued to move the pawns alternately until one of them formed a straight row.
